Years ago, a group of Filipino-Chinese
Businessmen decided to pool their resources together because of the
desire to help the Filipino poor. The group conducted various medical
and relief operations in remote towns struck by calamities. It was only
in the year 2001 when the group decided to set up a formal organization
for them to continue what has already been started. This entails helping
the Filipino poor while at the same time providing a venue for others
who are willing to help and eventually be influenced to do good deeds.
Thus,
Charity First Foundation,
Inc.
(CFFI)
came to be.


Charity First Foundation, Inc
.
is composed of individuals with sincere intentions
in being a catalyst for change in the lives of people and the society.
Initially formed to cater to various sectors and augment certain social
issues such as Education, Livelihood, Health and Agriculture. Charity
First has then evolved to take in stride the programs and tackle each
issue with tact as to purposefully intervene and create positive change
in the lives of others.

Lives we helped ...




Grace

For three years, my family was kept in the dark about my
schooling. I had enrolled at Philippine Normal University (PNU) and
took up Education without their knowledge or consent. In the past, they
had not only given little support for my ambition to continue my
education, but they had also discouraged me. My family was undergoing
tremendous pressure to stay afloat – they wanted me to stay at home and
help my mother. Despite their misgivings I kept my dream alive and
worked for two years, using the money I had saved to fund my studies.


I
worked as student assistant in the morning and I studied at night. But
when I reached my fourth year, we were required to undergo a practicum,
which kept me from working during the day. With the financial
assistance granted to me by Charity First Foundation, I eventually
finished my degree in Education. Though I did not pass the licensure
examination for teachers, I found another way to share the blessings
that I had received. I now offer tutorials for children in my
neighborhood who cannot afford to go to school.

After
four years as a Charity First scholar, I was fast approaching graduation
in March of 2005 with a degree in Biology (for Teachers). One by one, I
watched as my fellow scholars got job offers and loathed that I had not
their luck in finding employment. It was already November, and I still
had not been successful at securing my future. Eventually I was offered
employment in a vitamin supplement company, but in two months it had
closed down.



Thankfully, I received an offer from Unilab soon after the previous
company closed down, and underwent their rigorous training for two
months. Of the 40 applicants, only 12 of us completed our training with
a minimum grade of 85%. I have now been assigned to Tacloban as a
Medical Sales Representative; though I can count my employment at Unilab
as one of my most treasured blessings, I cannot forget the people who
have made it possible for me to be where I am as well as who I am.

After graduating with honors in high school, I had all but
thrown away my ambitions of going to college. I had no father, and my
mother could no longer support my education. I wanted to find work, but
I did not know where to start. After a friend referred me to Charity
First Foundation, I managed to complete my three-year diploma on
Computer Engineering Technology at the Technological University of the
Philippines. I secured an internship with Immigration Canada upon
graduation, and worked so well with the staff that they invited me to
continue my employment with them permanently.


After
working for Canadian Immigration for two years, I realized that my
career potential could not be fulfilled without a degree. I am now
enrolled at the Technological University of the Philippines, pursuing a
Bachelor of Arts degree in Business Administration, and I am hopeful
that I will complete my degree by October of this year. With my degree
in tow, I look forward to the many career opportunities that await my
return to Immigration Canada.



Ruby Kris Domingo’s “GALING STORY”

Interviewed by a co-scholar during March

2006 Life Skills and Motivational Seminar




Transforming My Learning into Reality



Charity First Foundation’s Life
Skills seminar have reinforced in me the values I had learned at home as
well as in church. They have allowed me to give careful thought to
their application to my daily life. It was during enrollment while
riding a very crowded jeepney early one morning that I was given the
opportunity to put into action what was instilled in me all these
years. Realizing that I was already a college sophomore, I was
excitedly thinking to myself about the coming school year when I noticed
the driver having trouble in managing the trip while collecting the
passengers’ fares. I paid for my fare but some passengers did not. The
driver was so flustered and stressed that morning that he had given me
change that was twice as much as what I had paid. I pitied the driver,
and remembering the examples that we had gone over during Charity
First’s Life Skills seminar, I dutifully returned the excess change.


While
on campus that day, my friends and I were so exhausted because we had
spent much of the day fulfilling the requirements. After three hours of
waiting in line, we had finally reached the front, only to hear the bell
ring for break time. While eating, I noticed a cellphone on the floor,
and was again reminded of the values that were taught me. I then
promptly returned the cell phone to its rightful owner. It was a simple
and uneventful day, yet to me it was a day filled with such blessings –
honesty, patience and goodwill. I could not forget it. I felt so blessed
that for at least once in my life, I had been able to apply the values I
had learned from our Life Skills seminar and bring true conviction to my
beliefs through action.
